Julia Bergshoeff by Lachlan Bailey for Industrie Magazine

The Isabel Marant Étoile Sweater expresses where my mind
 currently is - faraway, making plans for the coming weekend. 
This editorial shot by Lechlan Bailey makes the last hours untill the weekend
 a little bit more bearable. Sometimes it doesn´t need a 
fancy location for making great pictures, sometimes it just needs a good 
model like Julia Bergshoeff and a great stylist like Geraldine Saglio to be a source of inspiration.

The new Céline campaign pictures for Fall 2015 are finally out

had the privilege to shoot the iconic campaign pictures in tried and tested Jürgen Teller way.
This time rising new models like Carly Lios Agnes, Lisa Helene Kramer, Irina Djuranovic,
 Frederikke Sofie Falbe-Hansen and Karly Loyce are the faces of season and 
cut quite a figur in the upcoming Autumn/Winter designs.

Perfect Pair

In view of the current temperature variation today a perfect pair for colder summer days. 
Both pieces can be found this way or in a similar way in my wardrobe.
 Actually they are my staples for Autumn season but 
in combination with shorts or skirts they are just right for this weather as well.

Wishful Thinking

I can´t believe that I´ve moved to my apartment over a year ago and 
some corners are still not finished yet. But I geuess you know this situation 
and probably you´ll never get finished. 
For some inspiration I did virtual window shopping yesterday and discovered 
loads of pretty little things, which would be really welcome to move in:

New in

This is exactly what happens when you think you´re perfectly happy 
with your wardrobe and you think it probably needs nothing more to add. 
A perfect sized, taupe coloured, minimalistic suede dream comes across my way  and won´t 
go out of my mind. Admittedly I haven´t got lots of bags and especially no comparable one.
 That´s why this purchase is totally justified in my view. 
Would you´ve been able to resist?

Karolin Wolter by Zoe Ghertner for Vogue UK Augut 2015

My latest crush photography-wise is this talented woman who captured this insightful story above.
Zoe Ghertner photographs are sensitive and compelling.
 Definitely a name to memorise. Luxury brrand like Céline, Hèrmes, Dior and Chanel 
are among her client base. She has a really unique perspective of capturing things. 
I really enjoy her work and also this new story for Vogue UK featuring model Karolin Wolter. 
If you want to see more of Zoe Ghertner´s work visit her website www.zoeghertner.com 
but you probably know her pictures already from several campaigns.

My Current Uniform

This look is my answer to the currently unpredictable weather situation. 
A good mixture of light summery pieces and warming Autumn/Spring pieces, 
which can be used if necessary.  My current uniform consists of cropped 
tailored cigarette trousers and casual light tank tops on top. 
Along with it a pair of slippers or sandals for the summery touch and 
a scarf and hat for the warming part.  Completed with some timeless accessories and 
I´m ready to go whether it will be 30 degrees or just 22.

Santa Lupita

I was looking for this kind of shop the whole spring summer time long. 
While browsing through the world wide web I stumbled upon this amazingly pretty brand 
called Santa Lupita, which had its web shop launch only last week. 
You should definitely check out this lovely brand when you like traditionally 
handmade Mexican garments in the same way as I do.

Perfect Pair

Maybe from now on my new favourite category - to have two perfectly 
matching pieces makes your daily wardrobe decision so much easier. 
When you have a nice pair you can rely on, it´s so easy to find something else 
in your wardrobe to add on, whether a shorts, a skirt or casual pants in this instance. 
The Totême monogram scarf is on my wishlist for a while now. 
I think a perfect partner to a casual oversized white shirt.
Totally effortless but still a pretty combination with a denim piece for example.

Interior Inspiration

Less is more is my credo in almost every condition of life.
 I especially try to keep my bed room as simple as possible interior decoration-related 
to guarantee the best sleeping situation. A personal touch should not be missing anyway. 
This wall arragement of different bird prints, straw hats and a pretty printed scarf 
on a light grey wall gives this room a personal signature without a decoration overload. 
I think, I´d dream really well in this bed room about my next well selected travel souvenir to add on.

My Cleansing Routine

I´m always curious about other peoples beauty routines and what products work good for them. 
That´s why I want to share in my current cleansing products today. 
I am a quite lazy person when it comes to beauty and make-up stuff,  
hence I keep my routines as easy as possible. 
My Charocal Konjac sponge is a tool I do not want to miss in my routine anymore.
 It´s really that simple!  I put my Avène Mattifying Cleansing Foam on it and 
wash my face gently, rinse and that´s it. 
The sponge has natural antioxidant effect on blemished skin and combined with 
the Mattifying Cleansing Foam is it the perfect solution for my oily tending combination skin type. 
Once a week, usually on Sunday I´m using the Pomegranate Cleansing Mask from Korres on top
 to clean my skin deeply and remove all the stubborn impurities. 
After these 3 steps my skin feels really soft and radiant and
 ready for a new week, all in less than 15 minutes.

Klara Kristin for Saint Laurent SS Pre-Collection 2016

pictures via www.hey-woman.com

When it comes to great campaign pictures I sometimes get way too excited
 about them but these ones are just amazing! 
Since Hedi Slimane is the creative head behind Saint Laurent I like almost everything 
about it even it this dark, grungy style is not exactly my cup of tea. But back to the campaign
 shot by Hedi Slimane himself with model and actress Klara Kristin. The result of this liaison
 is a 29 sites comprising series of scenic pictures. I have the impression to recognize 
kind of a subtle short narrative, which I really like as well as the monochrome colour pallet. 
You see, I don´t know what not to like about the new Saint Laurent campaign. 
Start your week right and feel inspired!

Summer Look Inspirations

Last weeks heat wave came really quickly to Berlin. 
The conversion of a spring wardrobe to a high summer wardrobe still provokes cluelessness 
on my part in the morning. I think, sometimes it´s just the best idea to throw on a light dress 
and nothing else, but sometimes I want to wear something more dressed and stylish, 
what is not that easy with a slightly use of fabric. 
This women above know how to stay cool at 35 degrees in the shade:

1. Emma Elwin from makeitlast.se in a cool head-to-toe denim look and
 tassel sandals (also nice to wear with shorts for hotter summer days).
2. The funniest girl on fashion earth Leandra Medine (manrepeller.com) keeping it simple 
with an all-white skirt blouse combo and some nice little accessoires.
3. Style icon Veronika Heiilbrunner (hey-woman.com) also goes for white with 
an off-shoulder dress, loafer and a cute little straw bag.
4. German girl Maja Wyh from majawyh.com is rocking summer barefoot in a striped long 
caftan dress and keeps it simple accessories-wise.

Wishful Thinking

Of course, I´ve gathered again some really nice pieces, 
which just won´t go out of my mind over the past few months, 
but anyhow never reached my shopping bags yet. 
The reason for that is mostly the price, sometimes the question of necessity 
and sometimes I just don´t know. When I see them all now, 
I want them even more because they´d go so good together!
Do you know this phenomena? I just know, if you can´t get something 
really out of your mind for more than half a year, then it´s worth the bargain.

Here is my little list of 10:

These pictures of Filippa K´s Autumn/Winter campaign made my day!
Stunner Vivien Solari showcases the upcoming collection 
with cool elegance and subtle gracefulness. Photographer Josh Olins has a really good eye 
for the right moment and created along with Stylist Clare Richardson 
absolutely beautifully arranged campaign pictures for Filippa K.

Great News

Great news! French power girl Garance Doré is launching
her first book with the lovely name Love Style Life on October 27th! 
It´s already available to pre-order here and I think, 
I really need to get my hands on a copy as she is one of the most inspiring person 
within the fashion and blogger sphere, always with this totally natural and pleasent attitude.
 What we can expect?

As she says herself: ´I’m talking about style obviously, shopping, make up, 
fashion weeks and high heels, but also about how to (try to) be a beautiful woman inside and outside.´

Weekend Inspiration

Summer, sun and ice cream is my mantra for this weekend! 
Summer has finally reached Germany and that means 35 degrees in the shade.
Wearing nothing apart from a bandana like Daria Werbowy 
is maybe the only way to survive these hot days in the sun. 
I´m looking forward to a cold drink and delicious ice cream and 
try to stay just as cool as Daria.

Ikea Sinnerlig Collection

pictures via www.ikea.com

There is finally a good reason for a casual trip to Ikea from the beginning of August - 
in fact the launch of its two new collections SINNERLIG and SKOGSTA.
Even I don´t need anything for my apartment I definitely need 
at least a short glance of  SINNERLIG collection, which was created in collaboration 
with Ilse Crawford with the focus on modest, linear designs made from natural materials 
such as cork, bamboo and cotton to create a zen feel moment for your home.
There are small kitchen, table or decoration items available as well as pieces of furniture. 
I cast a covetous eye on the cachepots and this stunning daybed, 
which is unfortunately absolutely unessectial at the moment. 
But there is nothing to say about a short visit to get an overview and a delicious hot dog!

What´s in my beach bag

It´s beach time - first time this year and that is what I am going to pack. 
(and of course sun protection and a bottle of water as well!). 
Enjoy this great day!

Perfect Pair

Just like any other year I´m much too late with my holiday plans for summer. 
Right now I´m browsing through millions of airline websites to find 
the one and only last minute catch but I´m still far away from any good offer
 which is compatible to my expectations. 
Clothing wise I do not have this problems at all. 
A casual glance at the online shop new arrival section and my vacation uniform 
was literally chosen in 5 minutes. When all decisions would be that easy...
